Keith still plays his quite frequently!
I really love the idea of taking someone else's unloved, inexpensive guitar, giving it a couple of tweaks and gigging the hell out of it. The blow-out, £250 Black Thomann Cabronitas were so cheap- brand new- that they came into this category.
I will take mine to a jam this afternoon, confident that it will handle anything I'm asked to do. Sounds great and easy to play.
That's right I had no intention of buying one simply because I'd never tried one but 250 was insane value and I knew I could make a quid on it if I didn't like it!
But it's in my top three best bang per Buck guitars I've ever bought.
It's only the cheap pick guard and the less than perfectly aligned strat bridge that I'd change but they don't bother me enough to change out. I had to solder the switch connection on mine too as it was not well done. The neck pups and overall guitar is a great addition in the arsenal.
What tracks does he use them on and do you have any clips? Curious now. Thanks.
Agree on the pickguard, I have my eye on a black bakelite one. I switched out the bridge for a slightly narrower Hipshot (string spacing is 1/32" narrower) and it fixed the alignment. Funny you mentioned the switch. Sometimes I'd flip the switch and get no sound until I wiggled it. When the tech installed the TV Jones, he fixed the connection and the original switch works fine now.
Its on most of the get closer album, right after the flood fender gave him one.
these are just behind the scene type
Somebody like you
Theres quite a bit more out there. The black la cab Id say is one of his more go to guitars, now along with his 64 strat.
I can find some better ones if you want, this was just a quick memory jog.
Great thanks for those, I'd seen the rig one which is where I'd learned he used them.
Something about this guitars... I've had mine for well over a year... it felt right the moment I picked it up at the shop... yes, it has a couple of issues, which used to bother me at first... but it has so many pluses... I play mine minus the scratch plate... love its tone so I'm not overly bothered with string over pups issues... I turned the switch slightly so now it's at 45o towards the neck pup, feels more natural that way...
I think I've found myself playing it more and more and worrying less...
I can rarely even get to spend a week with these once completed ........ Love them . Easily could live with these as my only guitar .
nice guitars but did anyone ever research the name?
I have a theory about how it came to be used.
Bastard or not. Love mine and I can't quit playing it. Only thing I've done to it is tighten the jack cup and change strings to .010" flat wounds.
On the right
I hope they are good. I bought a USA Telebration Cabronita today as a MF SDotD. I'll let everyone know what I think when I get it.
On the right when you live down under.
I saw Chrissie Hynde playing one a couple years back. Does that count?
Does Chrissie Hynde "count"? You betcha!
Upside down for me.
...but I think the tort guard is an improvement of the cheap white plastic one. Nice. Might do that.
I LOVE my Thinline Cabronita - and I'm quite the "star player."
Well, in my own little world, I am.
Of course, you'd all know that if Premiere Guitar would return my calls requesting they do a "Rig Rundown" with me.
We could start here...
